How important is sex in a relationship?

Report as

For teens? It's important NOT to do it. For adults in a serious relationship, preferably married, it's VERY important, s e x is the physical manifestation of one's emotional feelings for their spouse.

When you're both around 200 years of age, I would say the importance could be minimized.

In a married relationship it is very important. In a non married relationship it is better for the relationship to wait and have no s3xual relations.

It's the LAST thing that a lasting relationship should be about ... even for adults.

There is a difference between a relationship and marriage.
therefore, there is no importance of sex besides not to do it.
Sex is created for Marriage.

S3x was "created" for procreation ... Marriage was created for property rights

I think it's very important! I've been unhappily married for 27 years and never had a great sex life but we completely stopped having sex over 10 years ago. I feel nothing for him anymore. We are friends and not even good ones at that! Sex is the glue among other things that holds your relationship together I think. I envy people that are lucky enough to have that

I'd put it up there on the podium. Of course, I'm not talking about the act. I'm talking about the things that make the physical act so good. You can pay for sex, but you can't pay for honesty, love, trust, caring, kindness, understanding, belief & respect in another.

It's importance will vary from person to person. It is whatever it is for you. And the other person/people. There is no absolute rule for all humans.

It plays an important role. I wouldn't say it's the make or break of the relationship. I agree with most of the answers here that it is important BUT then more so on honestly, loyalty, trust, love, caring, kindness, understanding, compromise, respect and all that jazz.

Teens tend to exploit this aspect of a relationship to justify and CLAIM of their love. They have NO IDEA how WRONG they are.

Well how about a non married couple, you want them to rush into a marriage just to have sex, that's why the divorce rate is so high

It is one form of non verbal communication between two people. It shows so many emotions. I would never stay longterm with a lousy lover. I think it's a lot more important than people admit it is.

Teens: No.No.No. That comes after college. For adults, if your spouse truly loves you, that doesnt matter, my sister didnt want that, so her and her spouse just adopted...hope this helped :D

Because with divorce nowadays if you didn't want to get married again by those rules you could never have sex again & I would never marry just to be able to have sex.

very important, but not 100%.... you need a personal connection without sex as well. but having that intimacy is great in showing love

When you are married, yes but if you are a teenager instead of being worried about sex worry about graduating.

It depends on how important you want to make it in your relationship. If you solely build a relationship around sex then that relationship will fail. Now, if you are just looking to hook up for a good time then it's pretty important. However, taking the step into a sexual relationship is a big one. It's something that you need to make sure that you and your partner are both ready for.
